How to Set Up a VPN for PS5 / PS4

Setting up CyberGhost VPN on your PlayStation can take as little as 5 to 10 minutes, and our Customer Support team is available if you have any questions. Read on to find out how to use a VPN on PS5 and PS4.

Some routers and modems support setting up a VPN in their settings page. You just log in to your router, and configure it to use the CyberGhost network to protect all of your devices at once. Connect to a VPN server in the country of your choice, and go.

If you just want to use a VPN for your PlayStation, you actually can configure your router to do that, and leave the rest of your devices connected to the local internet. It’s great for when you want to play games in one country, but still be able to access your local streaming services.

Set Up a Virtual Router

You’ll need to install virtual router software on your PC or other device, and then connect your console to the internet through that device. You can then configure the virtual router to take advantage of the CyberGhost VPN network.

This method is a bit more complicated, but if your router doesn’t support VPNs, it is an option. You’ll need an extra device, like a PC, Raspberry Pi, or even an Android phone in a pinch, but it gets the job done.

If your router doesn’t support VPNs, and you only need to connect to servers in the US or the UK, you can configure your PlayStation to use CyberGhost’s Smart DNS service. This method bypasses the need for a VPN at all, and can help you change your location with minimal fuss.

Do note, however, that this method doesn’t come with all the security or convenience features of a VPN. Still, it’s there if you need it, and you can use it on your console and enjoy the full CyberGhost feature set on your other devices.

Why Do You Need a VPN for PlayStation?

Your connection with the game server may be laggy due to bad netcode in the game, congested networks, or ISP servers that need some upgrades. Using a gaming VPN can help bypass these issues, and actually reduce your latency. It’s easier to bag those wins when you’re not lagging.

Avoid DDoS Attacks from Sore Losers

Avoid DDoS Attacks from Sore Losers

Sometimes, whether by design or by accident, an online game might expose your IP address to other players, which leaves you open to DDoS attacks. CyberGhost VPN prevents this by hiding your IP address and replacing it with one from a remote server.

While PlayStation games aren’t region-locked, sometimes their DLCs are. Vouchers and game codes can be region-locked too. A VPN can help you avoid all that trouble by letting you change your region at will. Just pick the server you need via your router, put in your code, and play.

Never Get Throttled Again

Never Get Throttled Again

Some ISPs like to slow down your game traffic for reasons that are frankly silly. You can avoid that by using a VPN to encrypt your internet traffic between your console and the game server. If your ISP can’t tell what you’re doing, it can’t throttle your connection based on your activity.

PlayStation Plus members on the Premium plan can stream games directly to their console, and play them without actually downloading them. This requires a fast and stable connection — get CyberGhost VPN to keep your latency low and your visuals clean.

PlayStation cloud streaming is only available in: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Cyprus, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the United States.

FAQ

Absolutely. It’s not as simple as using one on a PC, but it doesn’t take long to set up. Plenty of console gamers use a gaming VPN to protect their connections and home networks, while helping to keep their connections stable and their lag low.

PlayStation and Sony don’t have any issues with VPNs so long as they are used for simple, normal gameplay. However, anyone who uses one to try to cheat risks being banned, exactly as you’d expect.

There are two ways to do this. The first is to configure your router or modem to route your internet traffic through our network. You can do this for all of your devices, or just your console, but you will need a router that supports it.

You can also connect to the internet through a PC, laptop, or Raspberry Pi and use that as a virtual router, and configure that to use CyberGhost VPN servers.

Lastly, CyberGhost VPN offers a Smart DNS service. You can configure it on your console directly, bypassing the need for a VPN… but only for the US and the UK.

For all sorts of stuff, really. But the big three include: One, potentially lowering their ping by creating a more direct connection to the game servers. Two, hiding their IP address to avoid DDoS attacks. And three, encrypting their internet traffic so games can’t be selectively throttled by local networks or their ISP.

You can also use a VPN to access games and DLC in other regions, play some games or DLC early, or just change the region where you’re playing so you can play with friends. VPNs come in handy a lot, actually.

For PlayStation, all of the usual reasons apply: better gaming connections, security, all of those good things. But a VPN particularly comes in handy for helping you access DLCs from other regions, as those are sometimes region-locked (games aren’t). It can also help you redeem codes and vouchers meant for other regions.

And if you use your Playstation as a media center, a VPN can let you watch shows and movies normally restricted to other countries as well.

Mostly no, you shouldn’t. Only if the game you’re playing either bans users for using VPNs and you want to protect your account, or if it’s actually impacting your latency a lot. And even in the latter case, the answer is probably to switch VPN servers rather than turn off the VPN completely.

A good VPN provides so many benefits, it’s usually better to just leave it on. And, if you have any trouble, don’t forget that CyberGhost has a 24/7 Customer Support team waiting to give you a hand.

Pretty much all the time. This especially goes for the ones that stream on Twitch or other public sites. They’re often targeted by trolls, stream snipers, and more, so hiding their IP behind a VPN, preferably one with DDoS protection, is often a necessity.

On a lighter note, the potentially lower ping offered by a VPN can also give them a competitive advantage. These are people who buy $300 mice and monitors with refresh rates above 240hz, so they’ll take any advantage they can get.
